Explorers Blast off with their School counselor, Dr. Tolbert
 Welcome to Nexton Elementary School. As the school counselor, I am here to help students Learn to Live, Learn to Learn and Learn to Work. During classroom guidance, small group, and individual times, the counselor and the students talk about the district’s character education words of the month and engage in activities that focus on  standards from South Carolina School Counseling Standards and recommendations from the American School Counselor Association.
A Few Topics of discussion are:
Making Good Decisions
Getting Along with Others
Bully Prevention & Intervention
Conflict Resolution
 Skills for Learning
Empathy
Emotional Management
Problem Solving
Also, I help the community as a resource for parent education, business partnerships, workshops, and conferences. I look forward to having another BLASTING year with our Great Explorers. 
 
CHARACTER EDUCATION 
 
Each month a character trait is taught throughout the school and district. Students are expected to learn about the traits and implement them in their daily life decisions. Students (one from each homeroom class) who display these positive traits will be recognized during the monthly celebration.  We are asking for parental support each month by joining us with teaching the character traits and reinforcing them at home.  Thank you.
